Library Foundation Book-A-Thon

The Board of Trustees of the Great Falls Public Library Foundation has announced the foundation kicks off its 24th Annual Book-A-Thon fundraiser November 1, 2013.  “It was originally conceived in 1990 as a way to assure the library would continue to be able to carry quality books for children.  Over $650,000 has been raised from the generous Great Falls community for which the foundation and the library will be forever grateful,” said Sharon Oakland, Foundation Board President. 

“The annual fundraiser gives us all the opportunity to make a lasting difference in the lives of our children - the greatest gift we can give them.   Something that truly will make a lasting difference in the educational and cultural life of our children and the community”, Oakland said.  There is an ever growing, never ending demand for quality children’s books.

To contribute to the Book-A-Thon simply send your tax deductible check, payable to the Great Falls Public Library Foundation, PO Box 742, Great Falls, MT 59403.  Oakland also encourages employees to ask their employer about a matching program for charitable contributions.

The children thank you.
